Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men made up an estimated 2% of the population but 55% of people living with HIV in the United States in 2013. If current diagnosis rates continue, 1 in 6 gay and bisexual men will be diagnosed with HIV in their lifetime, including 1 in 2 black/African-American gay and bisexual men, 1 in 4 Hispanic/Latino gay and bisexual men, and 1 in 11 white gay and bisexual men.
- Gay and bisexual men accounted for 83% (29,418) of the estimated new HIV diagnoses among all males aged 13 and older and 67% of the total estimated new diagnoses in the United States.
- Gay and bisexual men aged 13 to 24 accounted for an estimated 92% of new HIV diagnoses among all men in their age group and 27% of new diagnoses among all gay and bisexual men.
- Gay and bisexual men accounted for an estimated 54% (11,277) of people diagnosed with AIDS. Of those men, 39% were African American, 32% were white, and 24% were Hispanic/Latino.
While the left would blame most of these problems on conservative “homophobia,” the truth is actually quite different. Even as homosexuality becomes an ever more acceptable societal given; the mental and physical consequences of such behavior continue to persist. In fact, the CDC notes that even as the HIV/AIDS infection rates continue to generally drop, over the last ten years they actually rose in the homosexual male community. This has nothing to do with conservative homophobia and everything to do with what we on the right have been warning about for years – the dangerous consequences of negative and immoral behavior.
President Obama and Hillary Clinton have done nothing to stop this pandemic. Instead they have opened women’s bathrooms to gays, transgenders. This put at risk females and young girls.
